Academy Award winning actor Jeremy Irons narrates Luna Pearl Woolf’s Angel Heart, a setting of a new story by bestselling children’s author Cornelia Funke. Of the work, The New York Times writes: “Ms. Woolf’s atmospheric music serves a different purpose… her compositions add psychological nuances and emotional depth through ever-changing textures. The … ensemble produces a dazzling variety of sounds, from the rich and earthy to the ethereal.”
The full project, Angel Heart, a music storybook, co-created with Lisa Delan, is performed by singers Frederica von Stade, Sanford Sylvan, Daniel Taylor, Zheng Cao and Delan, cellist Matt Haimovitz and Uccello, with guest appearances by mandolinists Mike Marshall and Caterina Lichtenberg. The album, with artwork by Guillermo Del Toro and Mathew Cullen’s Mirada Studios, has been released in North America on Oxingale Records and looks forward to worldwide release on the new PENTATONE Oxingale Series.
